KXIP vs KKR Live Score

India will take on Australia in the second Twenty20 global at ACA-Barsapara stadium in Guwahati today.

On a pitch that seemed moist and soft underneath, David Warner asked India to bat first at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati, which is making its global debut.

It was the first worldwide game played at the venue and the packed crowd was in for a shock after Rohit hit two crisp fours in the opening over bowled by Behrendorff.

Kohli won the toss and with the expectation of rain later, opted to field against the tourists, who had lost the five-match ODI series 4-1. It became the 49th venue in India to host worldwide cricket, but Australia didn't provide much for the crowd to celebrate after asking the hosts to bat.

What time does the live coverage of the India vs Australia 2nd T20 match start?

Skipper Warner has hinted that his team needs to play the brand of cricket Australia are known for ahead of the must-win game in Guwahati.

The main worry for the visitors, however, will be the form of all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who has not had an impressive tour so far.

Manish Pandey and Shikhar Dhawan were the other victims of Behrendroff's lethal deliveries.

Earlier, Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya provided some resistance with the bat to haul India out of a collapse as Jaso Behrendorff led a successful assault for Australian bowling.

Rohit Sharma hit a six off Nathan Coulter-Nile's first ball before having his woodwork re-arranged, becoming the seventh batsman to be bowled in the game.

Kohli departed two balls later after getting a faint inside edge while attempting a flick and the looping ball was caught by the left-arm pacer himself.

Jason Behrendorff took four wickets as India were bowled out for 118 before an unbroken third-wicket partnership of 109 from Moises Henriques (62no) and Travis Head (48no) helped Australia coast to victory. Unraveling the mystery of India's wrist spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal - who have shared 16 wickets between them in six matches - will go a long way in boosting Australia's chances.
